You’ve got a competitive spirit that drives you to participate in physically demanding activities. Sweat and oil buildup combined with teen hormones can lead to clogged pores, pustules and blackheads. What’s more, because the additional melanin in African-American skin may react with the wrong products, you must be extra cautious about choosing the appropriate treatment.
Harsh products can lead to discoloration of African-American skin, so I recommend a series of products that are effective but gentle enough for sensitive skin. Twice per day, use the Extraction Cleanser to gently wash away impurities and follow up with the Extraction Toner to soothe and treat. Complete your daily routine with Stress Extraction Crème to protect your skin. Once or twice per week use the Pore Extraction Masque to unclog pores and, alternatively, Fine Facial Polish to absorb oil. If you experience a breakout, use Spot Extractor to treat pimples on contact. Protect your skin from the harsh sun during your outdoor activities with Advanced Protection SPF 30.

In caring for ethnic skin, the key is to maintain a balance with a healthy lifestyle and diet. Hydration is always important but becomes even more integral when you are extremely active. Drink a minimum of eight glasses of water per day and up your intake while playing sports. Also, avoid using hair products and makeup, and wear sweatbands and moisture-wicking fabrics during strenuous activity. Prevention and early treatment of acne is vital to preventing scarring and discoloration.
